Thank you
Thank you for uploading the image for my better understanding.There are two possibilities here.1. Poor Oral hygiene... I am sorry to say this but the only good option will be to do brushing three times a day.
But even any number of times you do the most important point to remember is that after the night time brushing there should not be any food intake till the kid goes to bed.2. Calcium and vitamin D deficiency could be another possibility.I suggest you provide over the counter vitamin D and calcium supplements regularly for a period of 3 to 6 months and then we might notice a difference.I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today!
